I recently booked an overnight stay in one of the deluxe rooms with dinner in the club room (four course option with wine). Whilst the staff on arrival were very welcoming and the ship itself is quite impressive, it was disappointing to realize that having booked a room that you could not just wander the ship unless you were prepared...

I have to say at first I was intrigued by the idea of staying on a ship/hotel but it truly exceeded my expectations. It is simply the best value for money hotel I ever stayed in. The staff is the best, the meals incredible and the room big enough to live in and the cleanliness impeccable! You even get your...

I was lucky enough to stumble across this gem when booking my trip to Rotterdam. The cabins were very spacious, the food on the deck was beautiful and the staff very helpful. The Hotel was very quiet with an older clientele. It was a different experience and i loved it. There is a taxi boat that will also take you...

A wonderful experience. The former ocean liner has been meticulously converted into a lovely hotel/leisure destination situated in the port city for which she was named, Rotterdam. The beautiful mid-century modern interiors are as stylish today as when they were originally designed. The staff are friendly & courteous and knowledgeable about the ship/hotel. The restaurants, bars, theater, gift shop, ship...

The s.s. Rotterdam Hotel is really a destination in itself because of the ship's historical significance and the management does not rest on those laurels, they've kicked it up a notch by providing modern amenities, events and quality cuisine plus drinks for a very reasonable price. Breakfast is provided on the Lido, freshly cooked eggs, bacon, sausages, breads, cheeses, coffees,...

Out of the noise of the central city, water one side, skyline other side. 1959 cruise ship in perfect shape, large clean standard cabins. 3 km. from shopping centers. The " MARKTHAL" strongly advised visit for food & architecture. Shopping Center"Zuidplein"= the biggest shoppingcenter of Holland.... , what a desillusion !!!!

This is the second time I have stayed here and there won't be a third. Reception staff are good and the rooms are of a good standard however the restaurant waiting staff are average and the bar staff are the worst I have ever experienced. If you don't want food or drink its a good value option.
